sasha

Sasha

This stunner is Sasha!  She is a pit bull/shepherd/lab? mix, between 5 and 7 years old and she hasn’t had it easy, but you’d never know it by her gentle demeanor!  Sasha’s previous family got evicted from their apartment, and left her tied to a tree outside when they moved out. After a day or so, the neighbor put her in the house due to the freezing temps, where she would stay for several days by herself before being found. She was brought to a local shelter, where she was going to be euthanized due to lack of space. Sasha is very friendly with a great disposition, and super laid back and calm. She knows basic commands, and walks well on a leash. If you are interested in adopting Sasha, fill out an adoption application at www.survivortails.org!

diamond

Diamond

Diamond is a spayed female 6 year old Red Nose pitbull who needs a loving new home.  Diamond is an absolute sweetheart that will make her new owner very happy!  She has a great temperament, obeys commands and is highly intelligent.  So far, she seems to love all people, though she has never lived with smaller children before.  She does not get along with cats or small dogs.  She does, however, enjoy the company of big dogs.  She currently lives with another pitbull and they are best friends!  In her new home, Diamond would do best either alone or living with another big dog.  She is up to date on all her shots.  She is a bit overweight at 80 lbs, but with the right diet and regular exercise, she could easily get down to her goal weight of 70 lbs.  She has an allergy to chicken, so she will need to be on a special chicken-free diet (which is pretty easy to maintain).  Diamond is a great girl that would love to be with a family who can give her the attention and exercise she deserves.  Are you the lucky one that is going to open your heart and home for sweet Diamond!?!?  If you have any questions about Diamond or would like to schedule a meeting with her, feel free to call Kyle at (978) 471-8280 or Lisa at (978) 325-7352.

Carly

Carly was found as a stray.  She is around 1-2 years old and weighs about 50 lbs.  She is an ace retriever (can catch a ball mid air and return it to you)!  Once she returns it, she will sit and wait for it to be thrown again.  This girl does not lack manners.  She will do best with an experienced owner, especially one that likes to run, hike or just be outdoors with her where she has an opportunity to exercise.  She was recently being temporarily housed on a farm, where she was exposed to goats, chickens and other animals, and was unfazed by them.

Carly now has her own Facebook page!  Feel free to Like and Share!  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cruisin-Carly-Home/219053581614614

Syrus

Syrus

FOSTER NEEDED This boy’s owner has been forced into an unfortunate situation where her only option is to give up her beloved pet and find him another home.  Syrus is 1.5 years old. He is very gentle. He gets along with all dogs and is submissive, though he is afraid of little dogs because one bit him once. We do not know about cats, but he has never shown aggression or high prey drive with other animals. He knows many commands.  If you can foster Syrus until his owner gets back on her feet financially, please email Kane’s Krusade at info@kaneskrusade.org immediately. Kane’s Krusade will provide food, toys, treats during the foster period.

Jax2

Jax

Jax is a lovable 3 year old Pit/Lab mix. He is an absolute LOVE BUG!!!  All required shots are up-to-date and he is neutered. Unfortunately, he is currently too energetic for a prospective home with small children. Loves other dogs, though he would probably do best with dogs similar to his size and energy level.  He is very playful so needs to be around dogs with good temperaments that won’t be upset with his playfulness.  Jax’s future owner should to be able to provide him with the exercise and guidance that Jax is looking for.  Jax has basic training down pat! However, additional free training will be offered to anyone local looking to adopt him.  He may be young and energetic, but this boy sure does have a lot of love to give!  If you are interested in adopting him, contact Francine Coughlin at francine@bark-n-roll.com, and Pam Flynn at nrbandg@gmail.com

zeus

Zeus

Meet Zeus! A gorgeous 2 year old neutered male pit bull. Zeus came to us as a guardian surrender, after he was signed over to a friend who wanted to help get him a better life. Zeus spent his life tied up outside to a fridge. Since Zeus isn’t used to being indoors, shelter life is becoming very difficult for him. At first, he was having trouble connecting with people, but after a little bit of time, he started realizing the benefits of people and really started to seek attention and connect. Now that he wants more attention, he is starting to develop some separation anxiety issues, and spends most of his time crying, very loudly, for people to come into his room. Zeus really loves other dogs, but also has not had a whole lot of exposure to them, so he is still learning how to read other dogs body language. He can most likely live with confident cats that will not run away from. He also may be able to live with all age children, but may knock smaller kids over because he is still very new at learning his basic commands.

Zeus needs a home where he can slowly be transitioned into living in a house, slowly learn that his “people” time is a good thing, but also being careful to not spend too much time with his people, as to try to reduce the risk of separation anxiety getting worse. He needs to learn how to be alone, but also needs to learn to live indoors. Zeus is not completely house broken, and still needs to be crate trained. He needs a patient, understanding family, to work with him, and help him understand the ways of living as a house dog.

Mentally, Zeus is not doing great at the shelter, and has broken with kennel cough. He finished his first treatment but has possibly broken again due to his stress level. Zeus is seeking a foster to adopt home right now, to help him learn life, and get over his kennel cough. Once he is not coughing, he will be able to be adopted. He has also been started on anxiety meds, to try to help him settle. His new family will need to take him to their vet to set up a plan on whether or not they are going to continue the meds or start to wean him off of them.  Zeus has great potential to be an awesome dog for someone, but unfortunately, is so stressed, that it’s pushing people away from wanting to adopt him. Anyone looking to add this big, handsome man, to their family, please contact me (Beth Doyle) on my cell at 603.361.9493 or at Monadnock Humane Society at 603.352.9011 ext 101 where Zeus is currently living.

willow 051-1

Willow

Willow is in need of a foster, but preferably an adopter.  This little bundle of wiggles was found wondering the streets of Boxford.  The kennel staff in the pound were quickly drawn to her happy nature.  She weighs in at 49 pounds and is around 2 years old.  She needs a special owner.  She is frightened of new people.  She does warm up nicely once she gets to know them but she is not good with strangers.  She has been in intensive training for 2 months accessing her needs.  She knows all her commands and is extremely bright.  Willow’s options for adoption are limited.  She needs an experienced handler and a structured environment – calm and quiet.  No wild parties for this girl.  She is happy simply spending time with her people and doggie friends.  And she thrives on affection. She needs an adult loving home that will be patient and keep up her training. Her ideal home would have another dog and fenced-in yard where they could play together.  If you are an experienced dog handler that enjoys a quiet environment with no need for socializing your dog but, instead, a need to help a dog with limited options please consider Willow.  She loves walks, cuddles, car rides and  playing with other dogs.  Willow had been spending her time between the kennel and her foster Mom.  However, due to unforeseen circumstances, Willow now is in a kennel in Boxford and she is desperately in need of a foster to adopt or preferably an adopter!!!  She has wonderful eye contact and seems to have lots to say when she looks at you.  Willow is trying to find her place and wants nothing more than a human companion who will spend time with her showing her a safe, quiet new life in this world.  She is waiting patiently for that special someone.  For that she will give you undivided love, affection and tons of smiles.

Contact Info

Willow is through MassPaws rescue.  Please contact Mary Lou at maryloumaria@yahoo.com or phone her at 978-283-5723.
 
Willow also has a Facebook Page!  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Willows-Way-Home/535032713213099

    These dogs are beautiful and have so much to offer. I wish I could take them all! Prayers for rescues, adopters and fosters to come quickly!

  6. If the county that I live had not put a band on owning a pitbull I would be more than happy to adopt one and foster any in need of knowing and learning the joy of being in a lovinghome. God bless everyone who is helping, supporting, and loving te pitbull breed. A bred that is very miss understood.
